I was born on October 17,1994 and i’m from Skopelos. I am a graduate of the Department of History, Archaeology, and Social Anthropology of the University of Thessaly, in the direction of Archaeology, and recently i finished my studies in Coaching in National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. I have participated in two university excavations, in Ancient Sikyon in Kiato, Corinth, in July-August 2014, and in the prehistoric excavation of Zerelia-Magoula in Almyros, Magnesia in July 2016, where I specialized in the study and design of ceramics. I study the history of Skopelos, and since 2018 I study and illustrate the local folk legends. I love to communicate with people and share with them the local history,legends, traditions, culture, and old photos of the Island, and i want to offer you an unforgettable experience.

Regina was not only very knowledgeable about the history of Skopelos but she was exceptionally friendly and was sure to ask every so often if we needed to rest in the shade. It was a lovely 2 hour walk in the old town and we learned so much. I would recommend the excursion to visitors.
